I'm a motion designer interested in creating imaginative and powerful experiences.
I acquired my B.A. in Design Media Arts at UCLA in 2020. With a background in film and photography, several years of graphic design, and experience with live audiovisual media, my work draws from a comprehensive spectrum of mediums. My past clients have included Grateful Dead, UCLA, Lamborghini Newport Beach, CJ America, and more. I am currently working with FaZe Clan as a junior motion designer.
